It was only a few years ago coaches relied on DVDs and VHS tapes for video analysis. The inconsistency of rewinding video or the hassle of driving several towns away to pick up scout film is a problem of the past. Sports video editing software was archaic in comparison to today’s technology. The convenience of uploading practice, scrimmage and game video digitally has saved coaches countless hours. Unfortunately, this has come at a financial cost.

A majority of schools now own a device that has a video camera but they struggle to afford the increasing cost of storage. “Sports video editors have become too expensive for our school” and “they keep upselling us on other products when negotiating these multiyear contacts” are typical complaints heard from athletic directors and coaches.

Hudl was one of the first solutions for many schools looking for a sports video editor. But now there are alternatives! sportsYou Video is a new option for sports teams at all levels looking to cut costs and still get the core features needed to improve athletes and teams.
